Cappella Clausura: Eve and Adam

  • Eliot Church, Newton 474 Centre Street Newton, MA, 02458 United States (map)

Rising MIT composer Elena Ruehr’s “Eve,” composed in 2014, takes its familiar text from Genesis, but rather than the traditional retelling, poses an honest question: was gaining knowledge of good and evil such a terrible thing? “In a sense,” the composer writes, “[Eve] is choosing light over darkness, sight over blindness. It’s an astonishing idea.” Paired with Arvo Pärt’s “Adam’s Lament”.
